Nadda Cowboy Blues

onwards, always

your wagon hitched to another horse
galloping away

as you ride
away
let me be clear

I’ll sit by this fireside
a cowboy guitar
rusty harmonica

mournful blues

if you could see my eyes
they’d plead for
understanding

sitting at the table
I showed my whole hand
every card in plain sight

if you’d shown me
yours
we would still be together

out here on the prairie
in the blowing rain or
demanding sun

but I’m not a cowboy
and your horse
is gone
